9 Pink Lipsticks That Are Cool Girl–Approved

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, give your makeup look an unexpected update with these fresh pink picks—all Byrdie editor–approved, of course.
From natural to neon, keep scrolling to see our picks!
Milk Makeup Lip Color in C.R.E.A.M. ($22)
This ultra-cool brand mixes quality with a minimalist aesthetic to create the perfect pinky-nude. Full coverage no longer means having lips that are craving moisture; instead, shea butter and coconut oil moisturize without sacrificing all-day wear. We like the swivel-up applicator and the creamy matte texture.
Charlotte Tilbury Matte Revolution Lipstick in Between the Sheets ($32)
Charlotte Tilbury can do no wrong when it comes to lipstick, and this new V-Day launch is no exception to the rule. Between the Sheets is a rosy pink named by the makeup guru’s followers, and it has glowing 3-D pigments that make lips appear fuller without lip injections.
Lorac Alter Ego Lipstick in Optimist ($17)
Rich in antioxidants and paraben-free, Lorac’s new spring lipstick shade Optimist is the perfect soft pink to complement any everyday makeup look—or to balance a sultry smoky eye. The sleek bullet deposits the perfect amount of creamy color with last-all-day power.
Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick in Fig ($24)
Fun fact: Each lipstick in this collection has the same amount of antioxidants as five bottles of wine. Let your lips indulge in this pink-nude lipstick, and reap the benefits of wine (without the hangover). We’re obsessed with the creamy shine and intense color payoff—plus it’s formulated without harmful ingredients.
